Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Happy 4th Birthday Alex!


Oh my goodness! My baby is four! 4! For some reason, I am really having a hard time with this birthday. He is no longer a toddler but now a preschooler. Seriously, where did the time go? I still remember our first Easter together and the outfit he wore with the sweet bear face on the hiney. I still remember the teradactial noises he used to make and I will never forget how precious our time was together at 2 in the morning.





Alex made me a Mommy and for that I am forever grateful.



I am amazed as to how much my life has changed these last four years. Things seem to be far more beautiful to me. For example, never before would I have thought that Tripp's old work boots were amazingly gorgeous. I do now!


I have never been a fan of sports....but I am now! Well...to the extent that I enjoy watching Tripp and Alex play sports together. Honestly, that is about as far as it goes! Lol!


Even mud is more appealing to me than ever before!



Alex's sense of humor has been hilarious from the beginning it seems. I used to say that he must have enjoyed how it felt to him when I laughed while he was still in my belly because it seemed like he was always doing something to encourage it. It literally felt like he was tickling the inside of my belly at times! His mean face can always draw out the laughter...
You know what they say, a family that practices their mean face together stays together! Ok..."they" don't really say that but it is funny none the less!


Happy birthday Alex! Thank you for making these last 4 years beyond wonderful!!!



We love you Squirtamas Pertimas Apple Pie! Your so cute, we'll kiss your eye!!
